The Church in Abingdon
CiA is a grouping of nearly all the Christian churches in Abingdon and celebrated its 20th anniversary a couple of years ago. CiA formalises growing understanding and relationship between the churches, which has developed over a long period of time. It reflects a measure of mutual understanding, support and co-operation that goes well beyond what is found in most communities.
The Church in Abingdon (CiA) exists to:
to bring a fresh global vision of hope through God's love to the people of Abingdon, offering them good news of forgiveness, reconciliation and new life through Jesus Christ;
to rediscover, live out and present the Gospel through our fellowship and worship, unity and diversity;
to express this message through relevant words and actions in the community and by co-operating with others to identify and meet specific needs so that lives are changed, the Church grows and our local community increasingly reflects the values of the kingdom of God.
